Many prayers coming your way. I'm a survivor, although it cost me my right leg.

Hang in there and fight like hell.

Looking at your id I think we are the same age (1951). My dear wife has survived breast cancer and I colon cancer. Hang in there and don't give up. Play as much as you can, it will help.

Our thoughts are with you.

I am angry, sad, a bit overwhelmed.

I have not put my problems out there to burden others in the past. I feel strange to do it now.

But I need all the help I can get.

Thanks.

I was told the same thing just four years ago... It was terrifying. My best wishes for courage, & recovery, are in the wind to you.....

Keep the faith Paddy, my prayers are with you.

I too was diagnosed with cancer 4 years ago with CML and that was a death sentence just ten years ago. They have many new drugs and treatments that do wonders and I am living proof of this. A positive attitude is a must.

Hi! I'm so sorry for your news and will keep you in prayer. Do realize that the emotions you are feeling are completely normal and part of a cycle of reaction to this sort of news. Take time to work through them.

All the best,

Bob

As others have stated, stay as positive as you can, and fight. It does make a difference.
If the medical professionals you are dealing with donít give you the information you need then by all means seek out others.
Hang in there, and I wish you all the best.
